Halloween Doors and my first Link-up

Believe it or not, I don't have much Halloween decor. I know- you just fell out of your chair, didn't you?
A few sparkly pumpkins on a shelf, a handful of spooky signs, and a couple handmade items.
I'm open to suggestions on how to make it all come together and spookify the house.
Bearing in mind I live in the desert. We have REAL black widow spiders as big as quarters- so no spiders or cobwebs, please.
It's not spooktacular, but here are a few of my faves...
Our simple front door.

Thank you Target 90% clearance last year!
$1.40 plus a little orange satin ribbon (because everything is better with a little satin ribbon) Photobucket
I have 4 feet of garland, too-I couldn't say no to $.90! It's still in the box- not doing much good this year. Our wood burning stove is pretty fun, too. Photobucket The gold webby supports on the sides look spooky year round to me!
Luckily the past couple years it hasn't been cold enough on Halloween for a fire, so I use the top for our jack-o-luminaries.
Vintage Revivals did a super fun tutorial last year!
Isn't that giant Boo sign fabulous? ShopGal sent it to me last year! Love it.
She sent this little sign, too. Makes me laugh every time! Photobucket It's hanging on our bedroom door this year. The girls' bedroom door is adorned with this appropriate sign Photobucket Probably my favorite little Halloween decoration is the one that hangs on our guest bathroom door this year.
 Photobucket
I put it together last year, and I love it even more this year.
It was so simple-painted canvases hot glued together with black satin ribbon and orange rick rack. 
Photobucket
The jack-o-lantern is still my favorite.
So, how do you decorate for Halloween?
What do you wear for trick or treating?
Do you make your children's costumes? Or buy them?
It's time to share!
Ready?

It's my very first linky party!!!
Please link up any and all things Halloween.
I only ask you link up your direct post- not just your blog.
And of course- blog, tweet, facebook all about the party!
Thanks for joining me!!!
Ready?
GO!
